Fright at the Fort recruiting soggy volunteers

Written by PR

PROSPECT - Fright at the Fort, is returning to Fort Knox, Prospect, for 2015 and is looking for a few soggy volunteers to help scare up some great fun. Why soggy volunteers? The theme of this year's Fright is Water Over the Dammed, which will pay homage to all creepy things associated with water (though volunteer chainsaw maniacs are still welcome).

Volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of two nights, from 5 until 9 p.m. and must be at least aged 18, or accompanied by an adult. Volunteers who prefer to remain out of the terrifying fray may help out by serving as group tour guides or as security helpers. Fright is the largest single fundraiser for the Friends of Fort Knox whose mission is to preserve Fort Knox and enhance its cultural, educational and economic value for the people of Maine.

Deanna S. Bonner-Ganter, curator of photography at the Maine State Museum, has studied Kosti Ruohomaa for 20 years and her biography of Ruohomaa will soon be published by Down East Books. On Thursday, Sept. 24 at 7 p.m. she will give an illustrated talk Close to the Land & Close to the Sea: The Photography of Kosti Ruohomaa at Penobscot Marine Museum's Douglas and Margaret Carver Memorial Art Gallery, 11 Church Street, Searsport, Maine.
